Why is Fiona Supporting Carers?
“Hi, I am Fiona, a hairdresser working in Bournemouth. I joined the Carer Friendly ID Carers Card project to contribute in my small way to treating Carers with a discount and some quality time to relax and enjoy having their hair done.

My husband is a paid care worker, and I know how hard he works. I can only imagine how tough it can be for some people who do it daily for a loved one. On the other side of the coin, I had cancer as a young woman in my twenties. I needed all the support I could get and will appreciate those who cared for me for the rest of my life.”
